Three homes destroyed in fire

This is the two story structure on First Street where it is initially thought that the fire originated. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

A fire broke out just after 12:30 a.m. this morning, Tuesday, Sept. 4, ultimately destroying three homes — a two story structure and two mobile homes — as well as several out buildings and vehicles on First Street in East Quincy. No injuries were reported. Quincy Fire responded along with departments from Meadow Valley, Greenhorn, Long Valley, Graeagle and Plumas Eureka. The cause of the fire is under investigation, though an initial theory is that it began in the two-story home and spread to a mobile home behind it, and to another next to it. More details will be provided as they become available.
